Good morning dear friends!Hope you stay safe and healthy. Rhodes, the largest of Greece’s Dodecanese islands, is known for its beach resorts, ancient ruins and remnants of its occupation by the Knights of St. John during the Crusades. The city of Rhodes has an Old Town featuring the medieval Street of the Knights and the castlelike Palace of the Grand Masters. Captured by the Ottomans and then held by the Italians, the palace is now a history museum. (Source)

Two bronze deer statues mark the site, male and female, the island's symbols, they stand imperiously at the port's entrance.
Close to the entrance of the small old harbour stands the fort of Saint Nicholas and near the fortress three stone Byzantines Windmills lend the finishing touch to one of the loveliest views of the town.
Opposite of the Mandraki harbor we find the New Market building in neo-colonial style with a large inner courtyard.
The Metropolitan Church of Virgin Mary’s Annunciation-Evagelismos.
The Medieval City of Rhodes (Old town of Rhodes) is an UNESCO world cultural heritage monument (since 1988). In fact this is the largest, oldest and best preserved inhabited medieval town in Europe. (Source)
